STRENGTH OF MATERIALS
After the syllabus for first year engineering being common for students of all branches, the subjects are more stream-specific from the second year. Strength of Materials is a part of the second year syllabus. The subject is included with an objective to familiarize students with the concepts of stress, strain, force, etc.
Strength of Materials deals with the study and analysis of various types of loads, induced stresses on different mechanical components, etc. This subject is a crucial part of the mechanical, civil, automobile and similar branches of engineering. The concepts included in Strength of Materials are used while studying the buckling, bending and other deformation in different components of mechanical systems and form the foundation for related subjects of later years for the above-mentioned streams like Machine Design, Mechanical Vibrations, etc.
The Strength of Materials syllabus is divided into six modules-
1) 1.1 Moment of Inertia
1.2 Stresses and Strains
1.3 Elastic Constants
2) 2.1 Shear force and Bending Moment in Beams
3) 3.1 Stresses in Beams
3.2 Direct and Bending Stresses
3.3 Shear Stress in Beams
4) 4.1 Torsion
4.2 Strain Energy
5) 5.1 Deflection of Beams
5.2 Thin Cylindrical and Spherical Shells
6) 6.1 Columns and Struts
Strength of Materials demonstrates the application of the fundamental knowledge about various types of loading and stresses induced. It helps to study the effects of component dimensions, materials and shapes on stresses and deformations. Students are prepared to analyse the deflection in beams, buckling and bending phenomenon in columns, struts, etc.
v Study Material:
As this subject is a foundation to subjects like Machine Design, Mechanical Vibrations, etc., it is very important for students to know the concepts of Strength of Materials. But it is difficult to completely grasp different concepts by only referring to books. That is where online courses, tutorials and video lectures play an important role. The video format makes it easy for students to understand different topics and study concepts! Online study material is regularly updated with relevant up-to-date information. We have well-qualified professors to ensure the quality in terms of understanding the technical aspect of different topics and to provide tangible concept clearing in order to help students write their exams confidently.
v Course Details:
Ekeeda provides Strength of Materials course at just Rs. 1500/- for second-year students. The course is designed especially to help students get their basics right and to easily understand Strength of Materials.
The course contains the entire syllabus of Strength of Materials with:
ü Over 180+ lectures
ü 40+ hours of video
The six modules are divided into 8 chapters. The chapters are broken down into almost 170 smaller sub-topics to enable students to grasp various concepts. Each video ranges from 3 mins to 50 mins in length so that it is easy for students to understand different concepts in a comprehensive and lucid manner. The course is designed with an increasing level of difficulty in the topics to provide a smooth learning curve for all students.
The video lectures, online tutorials, and subject courses are easily available for all students across the country on Ekeeda.com as well as on our engineering mobile app. Ekeeda offers special combo packages on study material and courses for subjects of a semester. This is done so as to improve the technical aptitude of the students in different subjects and help them to score well in their engineering exams.
